Hostel is fantastically located and has a superb looking communal area. However, as often makes or breaks hostels, the staff were utterly useless - specifically the reception staff. The entertainment staff were for sure nice enough. The reception staff were amongst the slowest, least More

We stayed in a private ensuite in an adjacent building to the main hostel. The room was nice but just as we went to bed a band started playing next door - it was so loud they may as well have been in our room! We also struggled with the lock to the building. I raised this with staff the More

Great find - far enough from the touristy quinta avenida and close enough to everything else (bus stations, great food options, etc). Cozy colorful rooms (especially the one we had on the last floor) and very friendly staff! Will happily return! More

Didn't actually get to stay here as my booking coincided with a Mexican detention centre for two nights! (Please get your entry stams in Tijuana if crossing the boarder by foot)! Coco let me rock up and chill in the lounge área and even offered me breakfast whilst I waited for my friends More

The b&b is clean and tidy. Shower had good pressure and always had hot water. Air con in rooms too. Staff were nice. The only down side was the breakfast. You had to make your own hot breakfast of you wanted it. There were three cereals but all were full of sugar. If you don't get down More

Great location: within walking distance to coastline, many shops and restaurants, ADO bus station for travels to nearby attractions, cities and a ferry to Cozumel. Very secure and private location, while at the same near by all the fun and amenities of a resort town. More

Variety of different rooms. Some are better than others. You get what you pay for. I stayed a few extra days in the Nice one and one day in the cheapest one after my girlfriend left early. Both lived up to my expectations. The nice one had air-conditioning, television, refrigerator, and More

Marcus is a super helpful host who will go out of his way to make sure you're comfortable. The rooms are basic, but for this price they provide everything you could need. Finding the place to start was a tad difficult, but once there, the collectivos provide a cheap, direct route to centro More

Such a great place to stay! The vibe here is chilled and much more like being at home, I actually forgot I was in a hostel. Marcus was really helpful and went out of his way to make us feel welcome. I really enjoyed my time here. The only disadvantage is it's not super close to the beach More
